Still searching for a hit to propel this lp forward, we now get $ with E-40 and Mustard. It’s good, always great to have E-40 on more commercial tracks and maybe it will grow on us some more.

One of the most fun videos we have seen for a minute. Jhene kills it and it’s good to see that Omarion’s ice box has finally melted and he’s back on form (even Chris Brown is on form here). Watch out for the Murder She Wrote interpolation complete with weird bogle from Brown and that fun, infectious head sway.
One of the highlights of YG’s latest tape (modern day west coast classic) gets it’s own brand new visual. Check out Will Claye’s verse as he is someone that i think we will be hearing more from soon.
Taken from the new YG mixtape, Just Re’d Up 2, this track sees two of Southern Cal’s finest collab on this Dj Mustard track. If you dont know who DJ Mustard is get to know him because he one of the sounds of Hip Hop radio in 2013. You can hear more of his stuff on this great Southern Hospitality tape Ratchet World or just think back to Tyga’s Rack City and 2 Chainz I’m Different among others.
So i just got back from a short trip to Nigeria, which mean i really get to immerse myself in not only naiaja music but other delights the continent has to offer. Here are a couple of observations, azonto is everywhere (in Nigeria often mixed with atigi), experimentation is everywhere whether it be hiplife, hip hop, pop or any other genre. The most important thing is the importance of Channel O and Trace more than MTV Base in Africa. All three of the music video channels are heavily biased more and more towards African music, it’s great because the exposure helps all these artists travel the continent more than ever.(The only other country i know that does this is Leading station, Channel O are about to have their annual music awards and one of the nominees is this song by Orezi. The video screams Tyga but the song is something completely different. The dancehall inflections are even as minimal as west coast stalwart DJ Mustard (producer of Rack City and other stuff for YG, 2 Chainz and Meek Mill) except with Equinoxx (bird) sound effects on top. The song is a couple of months old but still is good enough to be played in clubs right now. Also props to the Keep the Heads Ringin interpolation.
